Dolly with Teddy

Is this drawing incredible or what? The whole entire thing is, like.... perfect, you know? It couldn't be better. I can't believe someone drew this; it's just amazing. I'm so glad the artist allowed me to post their drawing here, on this blog, because I really wanted you guys to see this. Seriously, I could go on and on about the dress, the hair - but I won't. My rambling will stop here. The quick interview, with the artist of this A+ drawing, is below!

--What inspired you to take this picture?: I have always loved dolls and animals, it seems only natural that my mind wanders among them.

Besides dolls and bears, what else do you enjoy drawing pictures of?: I love the fantastical and the surreal, often with a touch of darkness. I draw cats, faeries, dragons, bones, things of the Elizabethan, Victorian and medieval eras, textiles and rocks. I love doing reflective and transparent surfaces and working with light and darkness. Stylistically, I’ve been heavily influenced by the works of Brugal, Durher, McKean, Escher, Victorian woodblock prints and comic books.

Did you use PhotoShop, or any other program/software, for the picture?: Nope! No alterations to the original pencil drawing at all. I’m currently software deficient and need to get some programs. I just scanned it in from my sketchbook with a regular HP printer/scanner thing.

What tools did you use to draw this picture?: I used a Hello Kitty mechanical pencil with HB lead and a Chococat 2B, and their respective erasers. Sanrio really makes quality writing and drawing utensils, plus I can have cats all over every thing.-- The End.

I love the title of your blog. I grew up with a vast array of knowledge when it comes to dolls. My grandmother's collection exceeds 8,000 (I think it is closer to 10,000 now). The drawing reminds me of a Kewpie Doll with hair (they are one of my favorites).

@Amanda -- Aww, I was just thinking of changing the blog's tittle - but, after reading your comment, I think I'll be holding on to it for a while. :) 10,000 dolls? Whoa, I've never heard of such; that's amazing. ♥
